There is no doubt that clear skin is a year round goal, but with the combination of heat, sweat, makeup and sunblock it seems almost impossible during the summer. We try so hard to cover up spots of acne rather than treat it properly, it then leads to more breakouts. Try these 6 tips to keep clear blemish free skin this summer!
Cleansing the skin is essential for attaining and maintaining a clearer complexion. Choose one that contains salicylic acid for best results.
Cleansing your face with a wash cloth can trap dirt and oil in your pores. Overtime this build-up can damage the appearance of your skin. But Clarisonic uses a patented sonic frequency of more than 300 movements per second to gently, yet thoroughly remove makeup 6X better than cleansing with your hands alone. Cleaner skin is the first step toward healthier looking skin.
How to Use:
Step 1 (Cleanse & Refine): Cleanse skin once to twice daily with the powerful combination of the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head and Deep Pore Daily Cleanser. Combining dual action brush head motion along with the cleanser, this step uses sonic fluid forces to penetrate deep into the pore to remove set-in debris.
Step 2 (Absorb & Detoxify): Apply the Detoxifying Clay Mask twice weekly to clean skin and leave on for 10-15 minutes, gently remove with the Deep Pore Cleansing Brush Head. Skin is left feeling fresh, clean and thoroughly detoxified.
Available for $169 at Sephora, Ulta, and Clarisonic.com.
Removing dead cells allows fresh live cells to surface giving the skin back a healthy glow. Dead cells are so yesterday, and cannot be brought back to life. Dead cells block off the oxygen to the skin, making it dull, and unable to breathe which contributes to more breakouts. Start with a gentle exfoliator for clearer skin.
To improve your complexion, applying masks are a must-have. They not only soak up all traces of dirt and grease, but they also have deep cleansing and conditioning actions which refresh and soothe troubled skin.
A great serum is a wonderful bonus to add to your skin care routine especially if you suffer from dry skin. Serums are generally applied following cleanser and are filled with minerals and vitamins that penetrate much deeper into your skin.
Remember: You don’t have to use every product every day but find a balance that works for you!
